President Obama's Baby Is All Grown Up

My, hasn't she grown?

President Barack Obama may still call her his baby, but his daughter Malia is catching up with her dad in height.

At the tender age of 12, Malia is believed to measure 5ft 9inches – just four inches shorter than her dad, who at 6ft 1 stands among the tallest of all US presidents.

A growth spurt over the past year has seen her shoot up to nearly the same height as her mum Michelle, who is 5ft 11in.

Pictured at the end of the family's holiday in Martha's Vineyard, it was clear that Malia is growing quickly, and experts are predicting that she could grow to be 6ft tall.
